Captain: Edin Mudjanovic
Captain Edin, “Ed,” thrives off of sharing his lens of the world from Top Shelf as an interactive playground with white sand beaches waiting to be touched and glistening blue water with the best secrets yet to be discovered. Ed was originally born in Heidelberg, Germany with Croatian and Bosnian Heritage. Always driven towards activity, he spent a lot of his childhood in Pacific Northwest, the epicenter for outdoor enthusiasts. When he’s not out on the water, Ed also enjoys hiking, biking, snowboarding, and fishing.
It was also early in life that Ed was exposed to the world of yachting. Falling in love with travel and the idea of sharing incredible experiences with others, it was undeniable that yachting was his destiny. Driven to make this his career path, Ed made it his mission to balance his college education, receiving his Bachelor of Business Administration from Gonzaga University, while also working on yachts in the Mediterranean.
Post college graduation, Ed has been active in working on charter yachts full-time for the past four years. The Bahamas are his dream location that he is happy to call home. It is a place where he feels like he’s on another planet with sparse populations and long sandy beaches, yet just an easy flight or cruise from civilization. Achieving his 200 ton Masters License, and 500 ton Near Coastal credentials, Ed’s safe and adventurous spirit are the ideal combination on board Top Shelf. You can find him entertaining guests with fishing and an assortment of watersports. As a Captain who has been a dedicated deckhand, Ed is extremely hands on in assisting the crew to provide guests the perfect blend of luxury service and activity.

Returning back to his home in Florida, he rounded out his skill set managing two “sister restaurants” featuring global cuisine with highlights of Italian classics and Asian fusion.

He loves to see guests light up the beautiful sights of the Bahamas, and equally delight at the adventure that awaits on every plate!
Mate: Marcos I. Padilla Trujillo
With the beach essentially at the doorstep of his home in Puerto Rico, Marcos naturally found his way to life on the sea. Considering himself a merman in another life, yachting became the ideal gateway for Marcos to explore the sea, inspiring curiosity of each guest, and providing a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Marcos also has a knack for entertainment and the arts, adding a fun and playful pizzaz to life on board Top Shelf. He dedicated his college career to studying Production and Theater as well as Psychology, and is a Drama Club enthusiast. His show now involves sharing all of the wonders that the Bahamas have to offer and even creating unique “theme nights” for guests.
On shore back in Puerto Rico, Marcos previously worked as a Manager of a Luxury Guest House and a Producer at a Drag Club. He was introduced to the world of yachting through his partner and quickly was motivated to move to Fort Lauderdale where he began his career as a Steward.
Marcos is constantly mesmerized by the clear waters, privacy, and soothing relaxation that can be found in the Bahamas, especially at his favorite hideaway, Chub Cay. When he’s not in the water or putting on a fun show, Marcos enjoys anything from engaging in sports like volleyball, rollerskating, and hiking, to the simplicity of reading a nice book and spending quality time with friends. He reflects this balance in his own life to guests by adapting to providing the experience each guest is seeking.

Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
